==================================================


The errors are coming from everywhere... this usually points to a hardware problem.
Give me the make/model of your computer.

Well, I ordered all the parts for my computer from TigerDirect and built it myself - so it doesn't really have a make/model. But here is a list of all the hardware in my computer:
-XFX GeForce 9800 GT Video Card (link)
-XFX nForce 780i SLI (3-Way SLI) Motherboard
-NVIDIA SLI DDR2 2GB Memory Card (x2)
-500GB Seagate SATA HDD
-Intel Core 2 Quad CPU
-LG DVD drive
-USB PCI-bracket (there are also a couple USB slots on the front of my computer case)
-OCZ Technology 850W PSU (link)
-Fans and heatsink
-*note that the side of my PCs case/tower is taken off for better cooling + I go inside my computer a lot

Here is some more stuff about my computer:
-Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition Verion 2002 Service Pack 3
-I have the latest drivers and updates for my computer

I only started getting the BSOD when I moved my computer from my basement upstairs... maybe something came a little loose?

Again, thanks for your help in this.

As edge2022 said, we have a whole array of possible culprits, so we have to eliminate hardware problem, first.
However...

I only started getting the BSOD when I moved my computer from my basement upstairs... maybe something came a little loose?

Very possible.
Open the case, re-seat all cards, and RAM.
While there, using a can of compressed air, clean the interior of the case.

Along with what Broni asked you to do...
Download this driver: http://www.nvidia.co...90.62_whql.html
When installing it make sure that any realtime virus protection is disabled as it can interfere with the driver configuring itself properly.

Also... go Start -> Run -> sfc /scannow
If it prompts you for a Windows CD, then insert the one you used to install Windows.

Thanks for the suggestions. I will turn off any virus protection (also making sure to disconnect from the internet too), then uninstall all my drivers and reinstall the latest ones again (being the NVIDIA nForce driver v15.25 for my motherboard and NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT driver v190.62for my graphics card). Also, do you think I should update the BIOS for my system and video card?

BIOS shouldn't be touched, unless there are some serious issues calling for an update.

Okay. Well last night I turned off my computer and Windows XP installed some updates. When I turned it on this morning I got this error message:
IO SYSTEM VERIFICATION ERROR in HIDCLASS.SYS (WDM DRIVER ERROR 22e)
[HIDCLASS.SYS+1902 at B72C0902

My computer now only starts in Safe Mode. I tried uninstalling all my NVIDIA drivers but that didn't do anything. I made sure everything inside my PC was hooked up and connected properly.

Do not flash your BIOS unless you want additional capabilities, support for newer hardware, or if a major problem was fixed in a certain BIOS release... I suggest you leave it alone.

In Safe Mode try System Restore to before you installed those updates.

Also try working in Safe Mode for a couple of days and see if you get a BSOD in safe mode.

What external devices, except for keyboard, and mouse do you have connected?

A. If you have more than one RAM module installed, try starting computer with one RAM stick at a time.

NOTE Keep in mind, the manual check listed above is always superior to the software check, listed below. DO NOT proceed with memtest, if you can go with option A

B. If you have only one RAM stick installed...
...run memtest...

1. Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip)
2. Unzip downloaded memtest86+-2.11.iso.zip file.
3. Inside, you'll find memtest86+-2.11.iso file.
4. Download, and install ImgBurn: http://www.imgburn.com/
5. Insert blank CD into your CD drive.
6. Open ImgBurn, and click on Write image file to disc
7. Click on Browse for a file... icon:

8. Locate memtest86+-2.11.iso file, and click Open button.
9. Click on ImgBurn green arrow to start burning bootable memtest86 CD:

Posted Image

10. Once the CD is created, boot from it, and memtest will automatically start to run.

The running program will look something like this depending on the size and number of ram modules installed:

It's recommended to run 5-6 passes. Each pass contains very same 8 tests.

This will show the progress of the test. It can take a while. Be patient, or leave it running overnight.

The following image is the test results area:

The most important item here is the ôerrorsö line. If you see ANY errors, even one, then you have bad RAM.

Thanks for the suggestions and help guys! I already ran Memtest86+ v2.11 (and did 14 passes with no errors), manually checked both my memory cards (with no problems) and ran SeaTools v2.13b (passing the long test) - so I doubt the problem is with my RAM or HDD. I did do System Restore (so I don't get the IO SYSTEM VERIFICATION ERROR) and successfully updated my GPU and mobo drivers.

Are there any good tools available to check my graphics card and CPU?

Other than my mouse and keyboard, the only other external hardware I have regularly connected is my speakers and monitor. I occasionally hook up a camera or mp3 player - but I have no problems with these.

I just did what you told me. I have two memory sticks... I put one in at a time and booted up my computer, everything worked fine...

If you have more than one RAM module installed, try starting computer with one RAM stick at a time.


I'm a little confused, was that not the way I should have done it?

EDIT: Earlier in this thread I stated that I had both memory cards in the motherboard when I ran Memtest, does Memtest check all the RAM modules that are currently in the system? Or just one of them at a time?

You did fine then.

I put one in at a time and booted up my computer, everything worked fine...

So, what's the story? Are you getting errors when both sticks are in, or...?

Software memory tests catch nearly all RAM errors, but they sometimes can't catch all of them. Booting with a stick at a time (and seeing if the error happens again) is the only way of ruling out RAM as the problem.

Are there any good tools available to check my graphics card and CPU?

For making sure that you CPU is stable... download Prime95 from here: http://www.mersenne.org/freesoft/
Just download and install (no need to register and all that).
Here is a guide for running tests: http://www.playtool....95/prime95.html
Run an appropriate torture test for about 12-16 hours and see if a BSOD comes up.
